Congratulations on Another Strong PGA Event

Congratulations to all involved for a fourth consecutive year of the LECOM Health Challenge at Peek’n Peak! This great event has been the result of an extraordinary effort on the part of sponsors, countless volunteers, Peek’n Peak, PGA tour organizers, and the Chautauqua Regional Economic Development Corporation. It has drawn thousands of spectators to a tremendous Chautauqua County venue. We were proud to play a small role in helping to establish a presence during the event to help guide visitors to other Chautauqua County attractions and businesses. Working with the Chautauqua County Visitors Bureau and the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation, we collaborated in staffing a visitor’s tent adjacent to the golf course. Our staff and volunteers answered a variety of questions, provided information, and helped to keep the rest of Chautauqua County in the public eye during this four day tournament. The cooperation of all involved resulted in a smooth and enjoyable experience for visitors, sponsors, volunteers, and golfers.
